Problem configuring SMTP with GMAIL in my rails app

hello everybody..
                        i was trying configuring SMTP with GMail n my
rails appliaction. when running everything seems alright but the mails
not getting delivered. also the logs show the action as
successful .not much details are available from there..so plz help me
out.. its a very simple system..i guess problem is with the
seeting..the setting which i am sing are.

ActionMailer::Base.server_settings = {
   :address => "smtp.gmail.com",
   :port => 465,
   :domain => "gmail.com",
   :authentication => :login,
   :user_name => "username_of_gmail",
   :password => "password",
}

plz help me out and point out the details..

thanxs in advance..

Gmail uses TSL (SSL), so you have to install a gem or a plugin to
support SSL (ActivMail doesn't support it)

Please take a look at this post:

Sorry but the thread seems to be broken..plz provide me with the
working one...
Meanwhile i have installed tsl plugin and installed it but still error
is there whereas the new setting are....
ActionMailer::Base.smtp_settings = {
    :tls => true,
    :address => "smtp.gmail.com",
    :port => "587",
    :domain => "MYDOMAIN",
    :authentication => :plain,
    :user_name => "GOOGLEUSERNAME",
    :password => "GOOGLEPASSWORD"
  }

and now the error prompts as

ArgumentError in EmailerController#sendmail
    wrong number of arguments (7 for 6)

and appliaction trace is

#{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/plugins/action_mailer_optional_tls/lib/
action_mailer_tls.rb:9:in `start'

where as sensmail action seems alright as..

def sendmail
      email = @params["email"]
       recipient = email["recipient"]
       subject = email["subject"]
       message = email["message"]
      Emailer.deliver_contact(recipient, subject, message)
      return if request.xhr?
      render :text => 'Message sent successfully'
   end
